Seeing Angel Olsen live last fall blew me away. It's an incredible experience and she's such a great talent.

He's sure right about Trump being a racist (no citation needed if you have a working brain), but it's unfortunate that someone in his place is so opposed to active engagement by citizens in our political process. We live in a (at least in theory) representative democracy which is supposed to be governed by our collective voice, but it doesn't work so well when people beyond those running for office aren't actively engaged.

Right, that seems like a great solution-- if someone is treating you shitty, turn around and treat someone else shitty.

I was actually pretty cool with the comedy show thing. This, on the other hand, saddens me. Migos just kinda sounded like generic trap-ish stuff to me when I gave them a listen before we found out how unwoke they were

She certainly seems like the kind of artist who would care an awful lot about what those 50-year-old records execs think though.

Jeff Sessions says "Good people don't smoke marijuana." He must be pretty awful because he managed to be a bad person without smoking the devil's lettuce.

Nah the banana ice cream in Chunky Monkey is delicious. I'm just not a fan of the nuts, so this will be perfect.

Hey hey Reddit is alright, at least parts of it. I sometimes browse there for recipes for cooking edibles.

Not looking good. This is a terrible, sad situation, especially for the victims.

I guess the only solution is to never be accused of sexual assault, whether truthfully or not. Conor Oberst was accused of sexual assault and forcefully denied it, and his accuser then retracted it. There are an awful lot of victims out there who are not believed and never see justice served, but on the off chance that one actually is falsely accused of sexual assault, this is why I say, unfortunately, it's better to come straight out and deny it (as empathetically as possible), even at the risk of sounding like an jerk.

May 11, 2017 on PWR BTTM Share Statement On Sexual Assault Allegations
Yeah, a straight-up denial would have been good. I understand the reasoning behind the language here, but if Ben genuinely did not commit sexual assault, he/she/(insert correct pronoun here) should have come straight out and said so, even at the risk of not sounding empathetic enough.

Never heard the term "bugshit insane" until now. I like it. It must be connected to "batshit insane" somehow ...

"A lot of the time publications like to focus on the most sensationalized part of the conversation." True, but that's just sort of a fact of life you need to life with if you're in the spotlight. Best idea: Either don't give interviews/comment publicly on things, or be very careful and measured with your words. That said, this pussy was much more substantive and reasonable than what I expected. I stool think she had work to do in developing and showing empathy with ethnic minorities, but she genuinely seems interested in doing so, so I don't think we should drag her too much for this.

May 6, 2017 on Pittsburgh Radio Listeners Make Worst “Worst Song Ever” List
Sadly very true. Though In at least the car of the US voter I would say some who normality vote Democrat are tolerant of a candidate who hates minorities, rather than actually hating them themselves. Lost in all the mania about Russia and James Comey changing the outcome of the election is the fact that normally reliably blue states like Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania went for Trump. There are many counties that flipped from Obama to Trump for precisely the reason you mentioned. The economic circumstances in 2008 were such that nearly any Democrat would have won easily, and in 2012 nearly any Democrat would seem like a populist next to Uncle Moneybags Mitt Romney.
